The Grizzly Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana, gives visitors a chance to watch the behavior and interactions of wolves and grizzly bears in separate habitats. Photographers will delight in the fact that the animals can be captured from the viewing areas, and with a little luck and perseverance, the animals can be taken without the artificial constructions for your backdrop.
The Center supported eight grizzly bears in the year 2000: two Canadians from Revelstoke, BC, five from coastal Alaska and one Kodiak brown bear. The markings between the Alaskans and Canadians are distinct but the two are classified as a single species.
Along with the bears were the wolves, over a dozen of which live in the habitat.
Spend some time over both habitats. Watch and learn as much as you can from the animals' behavior. It will not only fascinate you during your visit, but will help to foster the spiritual necessity to preserve the wild places in America, and it just might help you interpret signs and behavior when out on the trail.
- Pros:Isolated habitats, great for studying animal behavior
- Cons:Difficult to photograph without including manmade constructions
- In a nutshell:Cheap and safe way to witness predatory wildlife up close
